Test Automation in a Left Shifting World

Software has continued to grow in complexity and sheer size while often times requiring shorter and shorter release schedules. One solution to these market pressures has been the “Shift Left” methodology of product development. An essential piece of this approach is test automation. Test sooner and more often is the rallying cry of “Shift Lefters” […]

Workshop: The Dominoes of Automation

Let’s knock down some dominoes! In this workshop you’ll be challenged to set up dominoes in a way that solves puzzles. In doing so, you’ll learn the basic principles of good test automation: how verification steps affect what we learn from tests; how dependencies affect our testing outcomes; how interactions with third-party systems work with […]

Improving Your Testing Methodology Using Docker
